ABSTRACT:

Structural design is a very important domain to learn for the architectural students without which their unique and original thinking cannot be carried through to completion. While the students‟ emphasis is more on creative aspects in design studios and they fail to realize the relevance of various aspects of structures to their creativity. The academic curriculum and pedagogy here plays a major part in establishing the correlation between both architectural and structural aspect of building design in the minds of the students. This research is done to assess the teaching pedagogy used to solve the problems faced by students while studying structural design in their curriculum. This paper has identified the pedagogical helping tools to bridge the gap between the issues and solutions to understand the structural design subjects by the architectural students. Additionally this paper has also tried to recommend innovative pedagogical techniques which can change the outlook of architectural students while studying structural design from the beginning.
